January 18, 2019, Jennifer Severson

Since 1926, APi Group Inc. has been a Minnesota-based company with a purpose of Building Great Leaders™.  By choosing to sponsor the Big Brothers Big Sisters Big Night Gala, they are building great leaders in our Littles.

APi Group is a multi-billion dollar parent company to more than 40 independently managed life safety, energy, specialty construction and infrastructure companies in over 200 locations worldwide.

APi Group Inc. MinneapolisLast year, Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities board member, Jerry Allen, shared about the impact of our programs with APi Group’s COO, Jim Torborg. Jerry serves on the planning committee for our annual fundraising event, Big Night. APi Group was inspired to support our 2018 Big Night as a Gold Sponsor.

Jim shared, “There are always numerous places and opportunities to focus sponsorship dollars. Jerry showed us what a wonderful opportunity this is to make a difference in the lives of many young people… and their Bigs.”

Giving Back

In 2018 alone, APi Group contributed an estimated $12 million in charitable donations and countless hours of volunteer service. APi Group contributes to many causes and organizations ranging from Hiring our Heroes and Veterans organizations to ACE Mentor Program and youth initiatives.

“Giving back to the community is part of our culture. Demonstrated by our executive leaders, the example is set for all of our companies and employees to be part of something larger than themselves.” said Shelly Pagano, Creative Director at APi Group.

Together, the Future looks BIG
Potential lives in every child. Yet more than 86,000 Twin Cities youth are still in need of someone who will stand in their corner. Our mission is urgent, inclusive and powerful.
